The Uraku Tower Hawaii condo is one of those special condos that blurs the line between residence & hotel. Not because it's a condotel – it isn't – but because the facilities and services take it to a new level. Imagine waking up in a place that had not only a concierge, but maid service, too. You'd be hard pressed to guess whether you were in a home or hotel.
Whatever came to mind, you'd soon come to the conclusion that this was one of the finest residential condos in Honolulu
. The magnificent ocean views are enough to start you thinking that way, but there's even more.
The homes here are substantial in size, the smallest 2BRs coming in at almost 1300 sq ft, going all the way up to the 3BR units that begin at 2700 sq ft. The Penthouse Suite? Over 3600 sq ft. That's not just a lot of room, no matter which one you own, that's a lot of view as well, with top-to-bottom windows making up the outside walls of your home.
Your lanai is built to match, starting at 140 sq ft on up to the almost 800 sq ft on the penthouse. With that kind of space you have another complete room outside to enjoy.
The reason for these extremely upscale perks is the Japanese bubble, which burst just a short time after the Uraku Tower Hawaii condos were completed. The intention was to market this real estate specifically as vacation homes & investment properties to the Japanese million- and billionaires who were riding very high at the time.
Locals cried Foul and, as a result, laws were actually passed in Hawaii. Now, 50% of new construction units must be offered only to owner-occupants for the 1st 30 days of sales. Yes, you can live in a home that actually created new legislation!
Still, that may not matter to you as much as the ocean vistas, easy access to Ala Moana Beach Park & Ala Moana Center or the luxury level services. It's a good story to tell your envious friends when they visit you here, though. You may also want to check out.... Hawaiki Tower
